My Students

I work in an inner city school with a very diverse population. Most of the students live in the neighborhood; yet, some are middle class and others are homeless. Regardless of their home lives, they all come to school every day, eager to learn something new. I am so lucky to work where I do.

Every challenge I've given them they've not only met, but they have easily surpassed each and everything I’ve asked of them.

We celebrate all our successes however small they may be.

My Project

My students are amazing inner city kids. They are always going above and beyond in the classroom, but sometimes they are struggling in class because they are hungry. Having snacks like Goldfish, Granola Bars, Pretzels and Popcorn available will help these students focus on their classwork not on their hunger. This means we will have less behavior issues and we will also have better grades. This is a win-win situation for all of us involved with these students. Education is a precious thing and all our kids deserve to be able to learn and be focused. This will reach so many kids and I know it will make a huge impact.
